A brief history. William Green Russell’s 1858 discovery of gold along Cherry Creek brought an influx of some 50,000 gold seekers to the area in the “Pike’s Peak or Bust” gold rush. Two hundred of them met at newly founded Denver City in November 1858 to organize Arapahoe County. When the City of Centennial incorporated in February 2001, 100,000 residents of the surrounding area of Arapahoe County came together as a community, making Centennial’s incorporation the largest in U.S. history. The founders of Centennial were exhibiting the independent spirit of their pioneer forebears in deciding to fight off an annexation attempt by Greenwood Village, which wanted to improve its tax base. Centennial’s founders have since seen their young city become one of the fastest growing communities in the wider Denver area.
